This is one post I can’t claim credit for as it is a recipe from my Great Grandma in Australia, but this old-fashioned favourite just goes to show you don’t need new fancy recipes to enjoy a healthy treat. This is low in saturated fat compared to most cakes but still has a deliciously MOIST texture and sweet taste.  Hope you enjoy!



1 Cup of Self-Raising Flour
½ cup of Chopped Dates
½ Cup of Chopped Walnuts
½ Cup of Sugar
½  Teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda
2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon
1 ounce of Butter
¾ Cup of Water

Step 1:                  Simply sift together all the dry ingredients

Step 2:                  Add the fruit

Step 3:                  Meanwhile heat the butter and water together in a pan and bring to the boil

Step 4:                  Mix in all the other ingredients and stir it all up

Step 5:                  Pour in to a tin and bake at 170’C for 35 minutes.
